Shipping, Pre-orders, DoE and the Mystery Set 8 Years, 1 Month ago  
This is about so many things that tie together was not sure what to call it.

As has been pointed out before those of us outside North America face massive postage costs that can be minimised by ordering serval sets at once. Here in lies the dilema which possibly DF can help resolve.

I am interested in getting a Den of Evil. Also from the type of rumors going round about the mystery set I will very likely like to get one of these as well (no matter which of the different rumours turn out to be true) The problem I have is the expense of ordering seperately. If I order DoE now and garuntee myself a set, then I likely will not have enough to get the mystery set when released. Alternately if I wait until the mystery set is released on August 10 then I run a big risk of DoE selling out before then. Even if I can afford it, the total orders both shipped at virtually the same time end up costing me a lot more than if I was able to order them together.

So here are my suggestions for how Dwarven forge can help:

1) Allow for pre-orders of the mystery set. Sure I think that you would get less pre-orders than usual, and probably not any multiple set pre-orders which would ocur if people knew what it was, but you may be suprised how many would actually order one.

2) Allow for some way to "reserve" a DoE so I could be sure they would still be available when the Mystery set is released. Maybe a deposit, or I could place the order and have it put on hold and somehow add the mystery set to it (at appropriate combined postage) latter.

Hey Waza, I'd say to give DF a call after Origins and see if they'd be able to work something out with you... I'm sure there are many others who'd want to pre-order the mystery set.

There will be plenty of DoE available come Aug. 1st. No worries. You can wait until then to place your order for the DoE and the Mystery set. We were tempted to do pre-orders for the Mystery Set (and we almost HAD to do so for financial reasons) but we think it is best if pepole get to see the set before they buy. We don't want people to be disappointed or left wishing they had ordered more than they did.

Thanks for your concern though. I should have addressed this myself with an announcement. Thanks for helping me do my job better.

Thanks, that's good to know. I guess the reason I was so concerned is that while we know there are 1500 Den of Evils I have no ideas how many have already sold and what rate they are selling at so I was not sure if they would still be available, but if you say they will still be there mid August I can wait patiently. It is a big factor to us overseas not just what sets we can afford but how we group our orders to save postage.

I was all set to order a River set and Den of Evil after May's payday, the the DoE sold out a few days before I had the money and I ended up ordering a whole pile of Misc pieces with my river instead. Then I was going to order 2 lake sets and a DoE but the extra open waters pushed me to 3 lakes instead. Looking forward to August when I will order a DoE and quite possibly a Mystery Set. (or if for some reason I don't like the mystery set maybe an second river instead)
